In some Zoom meetings, the connection requires only putting your name. On other Zoom connections, you’re required to add your name and country. It can be easy to forget to add the necessary information with so many connections.
But, just because you forgot to add the country you’re connecting from, that doesn’t mean it can’t be done once you’ve connected. Zoom allows its users to change their names before and during the meetings, whether you’re on your Android device or your computer. By knowing where to look, you can change your name at any time.
The Different Ways You Can Change Your name on Zoom
Keep reading to see all the options you have available to change your name on Zoom. With a few clicks here and there, you can change your name before and during a meeting. For example, before you connect and enter the Zoom codes, you’ll see a box where your name goes.
Zoom will display your full name, but if you want to add more or remove text, here’s your chance. But if you don’t like changing your name when entering the Zoom codes, you can have Zoom show your name just the way you want by visiting the Zoom site. Once you log in, click on the profile option on the left.
On the next page, click on the Edit option to your right. The way you type your name here is how it will show up every time you launch Zoom.
Fill out the boxes that ask for your name and anything else you might add. Once you’re done, don’t forget to click on the blue save button at the bottom. When the desktop app appears, your name will be shown with the changes.
